My Creative Time: Favorite Stamp of the Month

Hi, today we are featuring "My Favorite Stamp" over on the My Creative Time blog. This month we are showcasing the "Bracket Sentiments Stamp Set". If this set of dies have been on your wish list, you can pick this set up HERE at a discount price. This set will be on sale the entire month of July! This special will end on July 31st, 2015 at 12:OO A.M. PST!

For the base of my card, I used Stitched Rectangular Frame dies. I then stamped the You Had Me At Meow: fishbone stamp all over the aqua rectangular frame paper die cut using Versamark ink along with Recollection's Snow Embossing powder. It is so nice when you are not around all your supplies to be able to create your own pattern paper for a project.
I stamped and paper pieced the adorable little kitty cat also from the You Had Me At Meow stamp set. I then colored him with Crayola markers. I wasn't for sure how it would turn out with using these markers. Though I think he turned out really cute!! I masked the eyes of the stamp and then stamped the eyes from the Peachy Keen Stamps: Black Eyed Critters face stamps. I added white gel pen accents to the eyes as well. I then stamped the super adorable nerdy glasses. I stamped and paper pieced the little bow tie to complete the adorable nerdy kitty look.
I stamped and colored the little fish from this month's release freebie Find the Joy in the Little Things stamp set. If you missed out on the freebie it is now available for purchase in the MCT store. I then glued them onto the thought cloud from the Loyal Friends stamp set. The thought bubbles went perfect with the sentiment.
I stamped on the sentiment from the Bracket Sentiments Stamp Set onto a Vintage Stitched Label die. The sentiment was what helped make me come of up with the concept of the kitty cat thinking about fish.
Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a wonderful day!!
